Redmond was left out of England's age-group squad on Thursday morning as he continues to battle a hip complaint.
But by lunchtime Canaries manager Hughton was adamant he had not written the 19-year-old off for Saturday's crucial Barclays Premier League clash at Carrow Road.
Former Birmingham City winger Redmond picked up his hip problem in Norwich's 4-0 Capital One Cup fourth round defeat at Manchester United on October 29.
Gareth Southgate's England Under-21s host Finland at MK Dons on November 14, before taking on San Marino at Shrewsbury Town five days later.
Southgate might have seen fit to discard Redmond - but his embattled club manager is doing no such thing.
The under-fire ex-Newcastle boss said: "Redmond, we are going to see if he can train on Friday and if he can then he puts himself in contention for the weekend."
The Canaries are desperate to hit back after last weekend's shambolic 7-0 Premier League hammering at Manchester City.
Hughton might hold out hope on Redmond, but striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel has already been ruled out.
Holland forward Van Wolfswinkel is still struggling with the foot injury that put him out of last weekend's Etihad Stadium horror show.
Beat Sam Allardyce's West Ham on Saturday, and Norwich would overhaul the Hammers and maybe even edge out of the relegation zone.
Demanding a reaction after the Manchester madness, Hughton attempted to play down the game's significance.
He continued: "This is a perfect opportunity for us: we want a reaction and it doesn't really matter who we are playing.
"It so happens it is a home game and we would rather have that, but this is the first opportunity after what happened last weekend.
"We are very conscious what the effect of a couple of wins on the bounce will do to our league position and to the perception around the club.
"It is an emotional game, you support your team and it does not make great reading for anyone connected to Norwich, irrespective of how we had played at times in those games.
"The table doesn't lie and we are on the back of a really poor defeat so we need to see a reaction."
